made the announcement monday. yamanaka is 50 years old. they're capable of becoming specialized cells which can be used to create tissue such as neurons and heart muscle. he introduced four types of genes from cells removed from parts of the body. he reported success with mice in 2006 a 2006. in 1962 he was the first to say that genomes could contain the information in cell organism. the scientists contributed to the study of how diseases develop and spread by creating and reproducing disease cells in the lab. members of the nobel committee says their work has made an important contribution to new medical research. professor spoke about his win at the university. >> translator: i am very happy about receiving this prize, but at the same time i feel a great sense of responsibility. ips is a new technology. it has a lot of potential in the field of medicine and the development of new drugs. i want to continue this research. now that i've received this honor i would like to or i feel i must contribute to society as soon as possible. >> professor yamanaka said he is honored to receive the

patents belonging to a company run by japanese scientist shinya yamanaka. the brother received attention from visitors interested in finding out about the use of ips cells. yamanaka won this year's nobel prize in medicine and physiology for his research on induce d potent stem cells or ips cells. this robot can conduct biotype experiments. scientists are using it to research dangerous viruses. the japanese supercomputer "k" is the world's second fastest computer. it is expected to dramatically speed up the development of new drugs. >>> and here with an update on the typhoon to the east of the philippines and world weather is robert speta. >> well, we are continuing to watch typhoon prapiroon moving off here towards the west-northwest. it has been moving very slowly. actually, right now it has slowed down from 10 kilometers per hour to a very slow lead in the westerly direction. what this is doing is it's expected to continue to intensify as it moves over warm sea surface temperatures, so definitely expected to become a very strong typhoon in the next 24 to 48 hours. but really,

nobel prize in physiology of medicine. japan's shinya yamanaka shares the honor with britain's john b. gurdon. both discovered specialized cells that make up the body. >> the nobel assembly has today decided to award the nobel prize in physiology or medicine 2012 jointly to john b. gurdon and shinya yamanaka. >> the nobel assembly in stockholm, sweden, made the announcement monday. yamanaka is 50 years old. he's a professor at kyoto university. he established the method to produce a new type of cells called induced pluripotent stem cells, or isp. they're capable of becoming specialized cells which can be used to create tissue for neurons and heart muscle. john b. gurdon was the first one to discover that it might contain all the information found in an organism in 1962. 40 years later, yamanaka confirmed and expanded on gurdon's thesis. professor yamanaka spoke about his nobel prize win at kyoto university. >> translator: i am very happy about receiving this prize. but at the same time, i feel a great sense of responsibility. ips is a new technology, and it has a lot of potential in
